Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP)
The Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) is additional funding for early years providers to improve the education they provide for some three and four year-olds.
Some parents of pupils at St Peter’s CoE Primary School have already successfully applied for this additional funding.
It is well documented that high quality early education can influence how well a child does at both primary and secondary school so we do want to make the most of this additional funding. You may be aware if you have older children that a pupil premium is available for school-age children and it has proved to have given a real boost to the children receiving the funding. We want to do the same for our early years children entitled to this funding.
Your child may be eligible if you have an income under £16,190 and are in receipt of one or more of the following benefits (see below). If so, please request an Economic Early Years Pupil Premium Declaration Form from the School Office or download a form from below:
income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
income-related Employment and Support Allowance
support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
the guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
Working Tax Credit run-on, which is paid for 4 weeks after they stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
Universal Credit (provided you have an annual net earned income of no more than £7,400, as assessed by earnings from up to three of your most recent assessment periods)
Alternatively, your child may be eligible for non-economic reasons (detailed below). If so, please request a Non-Economic Early Years Pupil Premium Declaration Form from the School Office or download a form from below:
